Watch Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir Sing Adele’s “Easy On Me”

Kanye West held another Sunday Service livestream today, which was dedicated to Virgil Abloh, West’s longtime creative director who died today at age 41 after a battle with cancer. During the livestream, West’s Sunday Service choir reworked Adele’s 30 lead single “Easy On Me” with some more religious-minded lyrics: “Go easy on me, father/ I am still your child/ And I need the chance to/ Feel your love around,” went the new chorus.

President Macron’s decision to honour a consummate black artist and civil rights activist sends an important messageAbove the portico columns of the Panthéon in Paris, which was completed the year after the storming of the Bastille, a solemn inscription reads, “To Great Men From a Grateful Nation”. Well over 200 years later, the famous mausoleum remains overwhelmingly the resting place of male heroes of the French nation, from Jean-Jacques Rousseau to Jean Moulin.

Amyl and the Sniffers review – a blizzard from Oz

Electric Ballroom, LondonChannelling singer Amy Taylor’s rage and joyous abandon, the Australian punk band bring their second album to glorious fighting lifeWe are living through what often feel like end times for genre. If recording studios had windows, rulebooks would be flying out of them constantly, endangering passersby.
